This week was super fast! We had a zone conference and that was really cool. We learned about how to invite people to baptism in all the lessons. I learned alot and I feel alot more confidence teaching and inviting to baptism. What was cool is that Elder Rodabough is the new Assistant so I got to see him and we just laughed the whole time! During practices I had to teach him and I couldn't do it because he was pulling faces! I recieved my package and I tell you what those are the best things ever (you know what I'm talking about mom) I use it for good luck!
J.A. has a baptismal date for this Sunday. I'm excited but nervous becuase his family doesn't want him to do it. I know he wants to but -haha- he is 60 years old and his MOM (I can only imagine how old she is) is telling him no! I just said that "You're a big boy - you can make your own decisions."
Also one day I had an impression by the spirit to go to this investigator that didn't want to be baptized and just very negative about it. I didn't know her so we just said "lets go see how rebellious she can be....and we will change her mind - haha!! So we went and she said she was waiting for us for about a week! I guess her grandparents (who are members) sent her to EFY camp and she had a ton of spiritual expiriences and even bore her testimony! She even wants to be baptized now! After I just looked up in the sky with beautiful MOTAB in the background- ITS A MIRACLE! This NEVER happens! She came to church yesterday it was great!
I bore my testimony yesterday in church. Its so wierd now because I NEVER bore my testimony in church before my mission! I bore testimony about the Holy Ghost is the same spirit that we feel in every church building and in every language. Even if we don't understand you will feel the Holy Ghost telling that these things are true! We need to be humble to the impressions of the spirit and ACT on those experiences to have a miracle.
I played some basketball today! OH its been forever! It was great and I was ballin' it up! It sounds like your trip to Island Park was super cool. I bet the fly fishing was great😑.... I miss it!
Please tell Shane that you better name the other mule Stockton! That is awesome and Cash with his comment is so funny! Its so crazy to think that baby Adalyn has 1 year now! That felt like yesterday!
I love you so much! Thank you for the letter and the packages! Hope you have a great week!
